The higher value segment, comprising properties priced at 1 crore and above, experienced growth in market share. This segment's share increased from 9% in December 2022 to 12% in December 2023, indicating a rising buyer preference for properties in this price range.

Central Pune accounted for 75% of total residential transactions in December 2023

In December 2023, Central Pune, which encompasses Haveli Taluka, Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC), and Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC), continued to dominate residential transactions, maintaining its significant share at 75%. While dominant, this share has declined somewhat compared to the same period in the previous year as new supply in the rest of the city increasingly meets the contemporary needs of the Pune homebuyer, said the analysis.

Higher demand for larger apartments sustains

In December 2023, apartments within the range of 500 to 800 sq ft, had a substantial 40% share. Apartments with an area under 500 sq ft also garnered significant attention, comprising 35% of transactions in December 2023, making it the second most preferred apartment size.

“Pune's real estate market's growth underscores the strong desire for homeownership and the appealing affordability factor within the city. This trend is evident in the notable surge in both property registrations and stamp duty collections throughout 2023, said Shishir Baijal, Chairman and Managing Director, Knight Frank India.
